Sometimes having company can be overwhelming. I recently had family staying with me so the more stuff I could do in advance I did! This was a great breakfast item and held up great for a couple days. I also liked that It was not overly sweet, it tasted more like a banana bread without being so heavy. I did not drizzle with syrup, but it’s optional.
